I love it and we've been using it every night for meals. I sit on the bench and my daughter sits in her high chair, and if my hubby is home from work yet he sits next to me on the bench. I still haven't gotten any chairs yet (but hope to scoop something up this weekend at the I <3 Thrifting event) or pillows for that matter.
So long story short, to paint or not to paint? I'm really leaning toward painting it - I think it would make me really happy and would be a fun project. Of course, I went to Pinterest for some more inspiration photos...
I could relax in this room.
I love this more contemporary but relaxed look for the dining area. And I love the plates displayed above the upholstered bench.
So what do you think? Would you paint the bench or leave it be? Are you working on painting any furniture these days?
I'm so excited too - I've signed up for my first blog workshop which will take place in a few weeks. Thanks to Diane from InMyOwnStyle for letting me know about this event. If you are in the Philadelphia area and interested in attending, let me know and I can send you the info.
